real help. juxtaposes that any with the ambassador, ambassador sanders, is it a problem to nigeria, is it a problem of trafficking in c.a.r.? we haven't heard much about that. have peacekeepers been complicit in any way? just the other day we heard of all of those young girls and young women, students being trafficked by boko haram in nigeria ended in march is about it is people are frustrated, and those young girls were sold into slavery. abducted and now sold into slavery by boko haram. i'm wondering if anything like that is happening in c.a.r.? have there been any reports of trafficking, and are we all making sure that those peacekeepers that are deployed and will be deployed are properly vetted so they don't become part of the problem rather than part of the solution? my final question. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i think that the bigger macro issue is the impunity, rather whether it's a tribunal order one off of the icc. i think it's the message that it sends and the vehicle we choose i think, i think both vehicles will be useful because we do have the international aspect fro

like to once again our gratitude to the presidency of nigeria for last month's efforts. i'd like to thank the undersecretary-general, mr. feldman, for his briefing on the situation in ukraine and recent events. madam president, to say that we're meeting a second time in a week once again to discuss the alarming situation in ukraine is a demonstration of the fact that this council has a responsibility to express itself. in the case of argentina, to reiterate our views about what is happening with regard to the bitter confrontations due to the escalation of tensions. news coming from slovanski would appear daily confrontations are reality and there is serious risk of spiral of violence with serious consequences for ukraine, the region and the international community. argentina condemns violent acts recorded in the east of ukraine and which have left the loss of human life in its wake. obviously the voices of members of this council have not been listened to or heard, nor the voice of the secretary-general or the international community. calling on all parties to work to calm the si

the other day we heard of all of those young girls students being trafficked in nigeria because people are so frustrated. and those young girls were sold into slavery. abducted and sold into slavery. and i'm wondering if anything like that is happening. have there been any reports of trafficking and are we all making sure that the peacekeepers that are being deployed are vetted so they are able to be a part of the solution. >> thank you, mr. chairman. on the question about this, the bigger macro issue is the impunity. whether it is a tribunal where the icc, think it is the message that it sends in the vehicle that we choose. and i think that most vehicles will be useful because you do have this international.and you're right on the number of convictions and at least it brings an international zeroing in as well as you could probably do this as well. but i think it is a question of impunity. i haven't heard acerbically on trafficking. but let me just say that i would not surprise if that is also an underlying issue that is going on. if it hasn't started, there is always the potential in

of this polio -- nigeria, afghanistan and pakistan. the success of the polio vaccine showed the public what medical research could explish encourage -- accomplish and encourage. yesterday, chairman mikulski of the senate appropriations committee, had a hearing on research and we had some great witnesses. among them, dr. francis collins, who is the head of the national institutenationalinstitutes of . they came to talk about america's investment in research and innovation. you would think that with the success of the salk polio vaccine and all the other things that have followed, that america would have learned a valuable lesson about this investment. but, sadly, today, some 60 years after the discovery of the salk polio vaccine, we are not making progress as we should. in fact, in some respects, we are falling behind. because of our failure to adequately fund the national institutes of health over the last 10 or 12 years, we've seen a 20% decline in the awards for medical research. 20% of worthy research projects have not been funded because we have not put the money down to make it happen.
